Canadian electro-funk duo Chromeo has been keeping fans on their toes with the announcement of their fifth studio album, Head Over Heels, on the horizon for this June. With lead singles like “Bedroom Calling” and “Must’ve Been,” it seems as if the guys are dipping even more into R&B by enlisting features like D.R.A.M. and The-Dream.
In order to create even more buzz, the duo has released a remix from Grammy-winning artist CID, who has worked with everyone from Cedric Gervais to Kaskade and Tiësto.
CID takes the funky original “Must’ve Been” and turns it into a high-energy deep house tune that dances with clean high hats and strategic vocal chops that will start your week in style.
Bristol-based producers Blonde have put their own groovy twist on the already-energetic original. They’ve substituted a lively piano and dance beat for the original’s guitar melody, priming the single for the dance floor. Blonde’s rendition maintains the spirited atmosphere of the original, but adds an extra kick of dance music appeal.
With only a little over a month to go until the release of Chromeo‘s fifth studio album, Head Over Heels, the electro-funk veterans headed to New York City to promote the LP on Jimmy Fallon‘s Tonight Show. The Funk Lordz have previously teased two other sexy singles off the LP — “Juice” and “Bedroom Calling.”
Performing their newest DRAM-assisted single, “Musta Been,” on May 8, Chromeo’s Dave 1 and P-Thugg delivered a flashy, colorful performance complete with all the off-beat iconography of their forthcoming LP, which included keyboard stands that sprout out slender feminine legs donning high heels.
The duo was joined on-stage by legendary guitarist Jesse Johnson, along with the Tonight Show‘s house band, The Roots. However, it was DRAM’s vocals that took center stage as the seasoned German singer/rapper graced the stage with palpable energy, bouncing between the band’s clean guitar riffs and impressive keyboard breakdowns.
Chromeo are already currently on their album-accompanying Head Over Heels worldwide tour, with stops in North America and parts of Europe. Head Over Heels is set for release on June 15, 2018.

Diplo has dropped off his first solo project since 2013’s Revolution, the new seven-track collection, California.Don’t let the title fool you — random white dude still be everywhere, though nowadays the Mad Decent head leans much more west coast than anything, and lately he’s enjoyed some time in the studio with a batch of rap’s most in-demand young up-and-comers. Recruiting work from Lil Yachty, Desiigner, DRAM, MØ, Goldlink, Trippie Redd, and controversial rhymer on the rise Lil Xan, the new EP sees Diplo reaffirm his status as one of today’s top A&Rs, all rolled up and tightly packed into a wrap fit for pop music’s most ambitious force behind the console.
The EP includes previously released material, including “Look Back, “Get It Right,” and “Worry No More.” Each track on the EP features Diplo’s chameleonic style wrapped around different lyrical deliveries, with each rapper and vocalist obviously inspired by their Californian surroundings in different creative ways. One listen through California highlights just how far the Major Lazer frontman has come since his 2004 debut, Florida — and it’s a lot further than just coast to coast. Florida was the beginning of Diplo’s grind, and California plays a lot more like the type of music one could sit back and watch a young man’s game unfold to. And 15 years after his studio debut landed, its safe to say Diplo has undoubtedly earned that right.
